SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 01/22/14 -- Guardian 8 Corporation, the wholly-owned operating subsidiary of Guardian 8 Holdings, (OTCQB: GRDH) a provider of enhanced non-lethal [ENL] defense devices, announced it has secured a $700,000 revolving line of credit with Cornerstone Bank of Overland Park, KS. Terms of the credit line are considered highly favorable for Guardian 8, which consists of a one year, 6% interest-only loan. The line of credit is secured by product inventory, work in progress, accounts receivable, and a personal guarantee by Guardian 8's CEO, Steve Cochennet.
"With this line of credit, Guardian 8 will have nearly half of its initial 10,000 unit production order for Pro V2 enhanced non-lethal devices pre-paid for 2014 delivery from our manufacturing facility, placing us in an excellent position to turn inventory into bottom-line results," said Cochennet. "This allows us to apply future investment capital towards growth of the company and additional hiring within the revenue generating areas of the company."
Initial sales of the Guardian 8 Pro V2 product line began in the second half of 2013 with test and evaluation units. The Pro V2 received favorable customer comments with its initial deployment and the company began reporting its first revenues. With this new financing and ability to acquire inventory, sales are expected to expand throughout fiscal 2014.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
